First introduced to great acclaim in the Fall of 2014, Michter‚Äôs US1Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon is a groundbreaking whiskey expression. It is made by taking Michter‚Äôs US1¬†Kentucky Straight Bourbon and then aging it for an additional period in a second custom made barrel. This second barrel is assembled from 18-month air-dried wood and then toasted but not charred. The truly unique and delicious taste of Michter‚Äôs US1¬†Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon represents a remarkable achievement given that it is Kentucky Straight Bourbon with nothing extra added or done except placement in a second toasted barrel.
Tasting Notes:¬†Campfire and cinnamon, with pecan and candied fruit. Lingering finish of baked pears, vanilla, and marshmallow.
